Insurance pay for 2nd surgery?



Recommended Posts

I have had a lapband for 10 years and want to have it removed and a gastric bypass done. I’m told that my insurance has a “failure” clause but I’m not sure what qualifies as a failure. Has anyone had a second surgery paid for by insurance?

Yes it’s the same insurance company. They have a revision clause for failure but I have to prove that failure wasn’t due to not following diet and exercise as prescribed by my doctor.

I have uhc and even though my lapband didn't have any issues they approved the revision today :)
